    Do we have any members in Belgium or anywhere nearby? Perhaps we could send Jim on a buying expedition, he's retired so we know he has the time and it's not golf season so he'd be available LOL

    I'd be happy to go, despite it actually being golf season. I'll need a lot of rest on the way and travel there in stages, say a few days in Reykjavik, then on to London for few more days to gather my strength. From there, I can pop over to Belgium by way of Munich and Rome on the train, hopefully returning to the US sometime in late 2030. I'm old and slow, so it would take a while, but I don't think anybody's in any hurry, right?

    Mr. Moo once gave me a sample of this stuff. If there's a group buy, count me in!

    Mr Moo isn't a member here. Or is he?
    Anyway Andrew, is it worth the mystique?

    I haven't seen him participate here in quite a while, but I'm sure his account is still active.

    Yes. Yes it is. It was unlike any other tobacco that I've smoked.

    Stop that immediately! Just what we need. Couldn't you show some compassion, any modicum of mercy on us? Couldn't you just say it wasn't anything special? For shame, Andrew. :tsk

    Knowing it's a HTF tobacco, makes it all worth the effort for me.
    The hunt is on!
    Muster up the forces!
    Call all the kings men and tell them we're holding their women hostage LOL.

    Come to think of it, Moo had a connection in Belgium that was picking it up for him.

    Maybe if someone who's still in contact with him could send a bribe his way, he'd make our potential acquisition much less painful than it would otherwise be.

    He just posted here the other day. I think he pops on from time to time just to check in.

    a search in the members section didn't turn anything up for me.
    I'm very intrigued by the simple fact that a straight tobacco can generate so much hype.

    If they discovered a 30-kilo cache of sealed, 1951 Balkan Sobranie, from one of the early expeditions to the South Pole, Mister Moo would have a connection. For us mere mortals...

    I'm familiar with Perique tobacco. I've been enjoying cigs with it made by America Spirit. Thanks for the link Dan.
